Hi. My name is***** Thank you for your question about Little Man. That is good that he's still having plenty of energy and seeming fine. Has he ate this morning?
That is good that he's ate this morning. Is this a situation that is going to need veterinary intervention? That is the unknown. Could that material from the diaper cause a blockage? If he was to start vomiting again, go off food for over 24 hours, have abdominal discomfort or have stringy material protruding from the rectum that wasn't passing - then a blockage could be at hand that needs possible surgery. I've had numerous dogs at my ER for diaper ingestions (the stool in the diaper is just too tempting!) and almost all have passed them with no issues. I did take one to surgery that developed vomiting. As long as he's eating, comfortable, and not vomiting - there is a pretty good hope that things are passing.
